WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER I, 1890.
We are cunducting TE M A TDr.s on
stricj a cash basis. Ow or tico Iceekls bef're
a subscription erpires, ice send a polite notoiica
tion on a posta card, asking for a renewad. L
case this request is not promptly compled with,
?^e infer the subscrier icishes vs to discouiunue
sending him the paper, hich ice do. and seed
him another postal card, politely tellin'j him we
have stricken his namefrom ourmailing list. We
hope we shall lose fete subscribers: but it is no
pay, no paper.
Muddles and mistakes are, we sup
pose, more numerous in politics this
year than ever before in the history
of the State. Williamsburg county
now comes in for her share, and to our
mind the executive committee of that
county have stulified themselves. The
case is this: Before the primary met
the executive committee, in making
the laws to govern the primary, pass
ed among numerous other regulations
No votes shall be counted for any candi
date unless he.shall first pledge himself in
writing, or in a card published in the coun
ty newspaper, to abide by and support the
nominations of the Democratic party and
not to accept either a nomination or an of
fice from any source other than the regular
ly constituted Democratic organizatiou.
Very few of the candidates paid any
attention to this provision, and now
some of the candidates who received
a minority of the votes but who had
made the proper pledge, demand that
they be acknowledged as the regular
candidates, and that those fellows
who got the majority of the votes but
who had failed to _sign the pledge,
shall be thrown out. This request
seems reasonable, but the county ex
ecutive committee after a day's dis
enasion of the matter decided to seat
the candidates with the biggest ma
jority, pledge or no pledge.
The executive committee, in our
opinion, represents the party, with
full power to act in and for the party,
where there is no conflict with the
constitution of the party. Of course
the party in convention assembled,
being a higher and creative power,
can at any time undo the acts of the
committee; but unless these acts are
abrogated by a convention, the laws
of the executive committee, made in
conformance with the constitution,
are as binding as if made by a con
vention itself. In this case we sup
pose the convention conferred on the
committee the power to make these
rules and regulations governing the
primary, and such being the case,
and the above being one of the rules,
the committee in canvassing the votes
hgad no right to consider the votes
cast for any candidate who had not
complied with this and the other
rules, and by considering such votes
cast for others that had not complied ,.
with the rules and regulations the
committee, to say the least, stultified
themselves. Only three of all the
- candidates in the county are said to
have complied with this requirement,
and it is very apparent that politics
in that county is in a muddle.
Col John C. Haskell and Judge A.
C. Haskell are brothers, and both are
prominent and influential men, Col.
Haskell being a member of the na
tional Democratic executive commit
tee. Both were strong opponents of
Tillman and fought him hard, but1
when. the people decided in favor of
Tillman, John C. Haskell like a true
Democrat acquiesced in that decision,
and says he will work harmoniously
in and for the Democratic party, sup
portng Tillman in every proper way.
No who his brother, Judge Haskell,
wosays he cannot and will not vote
for Tilm-nan and thinks it - best and
proper for the Antis to put out a can
didate for Governor in opposition to
Tillman. He goes further, and thinks
an appeal should be made to the ne
gro to decide the question. Last
Monday he issued a manifesto, set
ting forth in full his views, which he
acknowledges have been rejected by
all parties. His whole cou-se bears a*
strong resemblance to that of a spoilt
child who has had a decent thrashing.
CoL Haskell, on the other hand, is
working in harmony with the regular
Democratic party, and will not in any
way countenance the views of his
Col. Hoyt, ex-chairman of the Dem
ocr atic party, was last night interview
ed in reference to Judge Haskell's
mn*.nifest6, and has this to say, which
er~n but voice the sentiments of every
~.nut who is a true Democrat:
In regard to the letter of Jud3ge Baskell,
putblished in the-News and (2urie of to-day,
Ican only say that it does not surprise me;
at all, and that it is consistent with the po
sitionmaintained by Judge Haskell for sev
eral months. It is needless to say thal Ido:
not agree with him, and thatlI think it sui
cidal for any portion of the Democracy to
take soeh a position. Capt. Tillmnan and his
associates were nominated by the Democrat
ic State convention, regularly convened un
der the lawfully constituted authority, and
representing an overwhelming majority of
the Democratic party in this State. These
gentlemen were not my choice for the posi
tions occupied by them, but they were duly
chosen by the representatives of the Democ
racy, and I am bound to support them at the
polls, because they are the nominees of the
Isy this course I do not endorse an iota of
the charges made during the recent cam
paign by Mr. Trillman and others, nor up
hold for a moment the slanders and nmisrep
resentations of the past six months. I am
not one whit less opposed to the methods
pursued by some men to get into office and
control public affairs, and will not abate my
opposition to such methods within the Dem.
I am going to vote for Mr. Tillman as the
choice of the majority, who have a right to
govern and direct the afihirs of the party.:
That is all there is in it, according to moy
judgment, unless I proposed to join anoth
er political party, and I am fully convinced
that the safety and the highest interests of,
our entire people are securely linked with
the destiny of the Democratic party, State
We cannot disrupt the party in South
Carolina upon local issues and expect to
continue it as a controlling and united
force in Federal politics. There is too
mach at stake, not only as to the peace and
security of our own State, but in the great
contest which will be waged two years hence,
when the electoral vote of South Carolina
willhelp to decide questions of inmmeasura
ble importance compared with the futile as
pirations of the Tillman campaign.
Judge A. C. Haskell, of Columbia,
and R. W. Memminger, of Charleston,
are two of the candidates mentioned
by the Republicans in connection with,

3aster C Ccrnionies H. C. DeLaine :.s
cended the platform and stated that by in
vitation the Odd Fellows would lay the cor
ner stone to the new edifice being ereeted
by the Trinity A. M. E. church. lle then
introduced II. W. Williams, of Columbla,
district deputy, .who took charge of the i
gavel and proceeded with the work as laid
down by their ritual.
Rev. W. L Chapell, presiding elder of the
district, introduced as he orator of the day
Rev. J. E. Hayne, D. D., of Charleston, who
at once proceeded to deliver a well written
address. He took for his subject, "The
Negro and what he has accomplished before
and since the war," and spoke in substance
Dr. uAYNS sIerCH.
Gentlemen and' ladies, brethren and
friends:-The pleasure it affords me to ad
dress you to-day, can only be fully explain
ed by'an Infinite Being. My appreciation
of this honor is so great, it will live beyand
the grave. The thoughts that are called
forth by this occasion are many and fuli cf
importance. By them we are forced to walk
amid the ancient grandeur of the descend
ants of Ham, consider their present success,
and what their probable attainments will be.
The laying of this corner stone to-day
evinceth more than mere temporal prosper
ity on the part of the Negro. It sets forth
bis great moral idea of the true character of
society; it reveals his real e~neeption of an
intelligent worship of the Supreme Being;
it points to a perspicuous knowledge oi* that
religion founded by the Lord Jesus Christ,
for the purpose of bringing abtlt a perfect
salvation from sin and eternal death, to
every one that believeth; it teaches .at the
Negro has an intelligent object in view, and
that he will pursue it intelligently to the
end, cost what it will or may.
The Negro is commonly regarded as the
descendant of Ham. Il is conm pl-xion, hair,
and features have given him an unpleasant
standing with his brother in white, especi
ally in this country. This is evinced by the
opposition he mieets in both church and
tate, a-d again in the business and social
world. If the Negro and his true history
were better known and understood by ioe
of our brotheis in white, the prejudic
against him because of his black complex
ion, wooly Lair, and irregular features,
would decrease proportionately. There are
comparatively few white men who know alY
more of tho Negro than that he is a good
natured sort of fellow, a being that will
make a good or useful slave. Tiiey don't
seem to know that the N.-gro once ruled th
ancient world for many genera-tons, that lie
has left monuments in Africa and elsewhere,
that have excited the admiration and wonder
of the civilized world in every saccessive
generation: The ruins of these monument
al structnres are as munch a curiosity to-day.
as they were a thousand . or fifteen
hundred years ago. This fact is fully at
tested when we read llerodotus, Strabo, and I
Ephorus, who have spoken of the Ethiopi
ans and their grandeur. If the story con
cerning the existence of the Atlantis conti
nent be true, it should be remembered that
its great inhabitants were the descendants
of liam, as we are told by Plato who got his
information from Solon.
In the second place, we will consider what
the negro accomplished before the late war
of the rebellion, or from 1619 to 1660. Ev
ery one of the thirteen original St:Ites and
many others date their lirst agricultural
success and succeeding wealth to Negro ]a
bor. Negro slavery has been the iirst step
toward Amnerican wealth and independence,
and it has changed great forests into mag-C
nificent productive tields. Mlillions of acres
of swamp lands have been converted into
sugar cane, corn, and rice fields by him.
And from these fields billions of money
have been made, wvhich has built up theI
whole country, and given it a start in busi
ness prosperity that is without a rival any
where on this globe. From this great pros
perity a mighty government has sprung up,
whose jfbwer and influce' is dreaded on
every side. Thus the Americaun people owe
the Amnerican Negroes a debt of gratitude,
aside from everything else, that can never.
be discharged or paid, and the Negroes know
it. When the nation shallihave learned the
true end of justice, it will then appreciate.
fully the inestimable services the negroe
have rendered it for 24'J years without co
penstion or reward. At the laying of thi
corner stone to-day, this thought occurs veiy
vividly to thenm: how different are the scene
of to-day from bl1 years ago on the Jame
River, when 20 Africans were sold into per
petuat slavery, in the month of August, by
the officers of a Dutch man-of-war.
The introduction of Negro slavery in this
ountry terminated the existence of white
slaves in Vireinia. BJancroft says, "-White
servants" became "a usual article of trailie.
'hey were sold in England to be transport
ed, and in Virginia were resold to the high
est bidder; like Negroes, they wvere ko be:
purchased on shipboard, as mnen buy hb rses
it a fair." We thank God for the. remiimrka
ble changes in both cases. Tha-t is to say, I
rejoice to see the day in this countiy wheun
both white and black are free.V Whl slaveryi
existed in the several States, the nation, like.
a partly starved giant under ain appalling
coud, manifested signs of p aralysis, whic
left it as it wvere in the amwful throes ot
death; aind smarting under the ott repeated
stings of the dleep reanorses of a reitlessi
conscience, it eked out an exis~tnce I wh
rellected no glory, but unmesured disrac
upon the detteeted e'thies~ of its gouverinmnt,
until the emancipation oif the slaves. lt may
se a little strange, ihot it is true that the
natural wealth of thisy country was never
fully investigated and so extensively devel
oped until human slavery wvas' ab'lisihed.
This having been accomplished, the far off
West with its hills ot gold an d valleys of1
silv"', fields of corn, and pilanles oif wheat,
wvLe ,onnected with the tradling North, the
manufacturing East, aad the proinisin
"New South," iLy bands of steel arid har
nessed horses of fire, whtscse sharp and
shrill notes give unnistakable signs of civi
lization and progress. When we reimmbe
how lirnily our lathsers stool like walls of
steel against the approach of their untiring"
foes, and how like a rock their ehildren ar
standing stirless amid the vicissitudes of
American caste prejudices, th. tires of buoy
ant hope rekindles while the rae prepares
for a miaguiiicent and prosperou~s future
The magnitude of this qjuestioni only ap-l

selves? It cost liomae much v'aluaible trea
ure, royal blood and nioble lives, and great
honor in trying to aintain a larbairous
system of human slavt-ry.
The enmancitation of the slaves has senlt
up the value of Southern real estate to an
almost incredible amount. Cotton farms
are worth more to-day by far than they were
before the war. The cotton crops from 18i5
to 8, matde by Negro brawn and iabcr
added nearly $8,000t,000,000A to the great
wealth of the South. Southern piroduicts of
every kind have increased so abundantly
under Negro labor that it takes 40 ,000 mile
of railroad, beside the many steamboats and1
sailing vessels to remove the same to :nar

Negro is as Svinuntrical in pivsiue and
beauty as can be found in any rac uider

would grace the StudioS Of Phidias and
Praxitilcs. iing highly susceptible of
any degree of educatios within the grasp of
hiunmnA beings, I pronounce him the equal
of his brother in wite.
The national problema deals with the po
litical status of the Nc-gro. - 1y reason of
his lack of education, wealth, and standing
in the comercial world, his political egnals
(yet his opponents) raise the questiot of
his right to political office. Against this
unjust attack the Negro is contending law
fully and heroically. The justice of his
cause has brought thousands of defenders
to his aid an d consolation. It is in the halls
of congress where this national strife imust
end, but of -course not until the Negro with
his own fervent cloqienee and pathetic ap
peal moves the hearts of the Anierican peo
ple to justice, aniple and ftill, which nisust
cone sooner or later, notwithstanding all
the present oppositions. The lines between
the blieks and the wIites are sharply drawn,
and the cause of it is apparent to every
careful observer. The basiS of tlas ri.ilr
lies in the honest convictions of both races.
The brother in white has nursed it from his
iother's breast, and was taught to bel iev
in the inferiority of the Negro. The brotlr
in bhack knows by intuitive knowlede at d
according to the lrity of rcasont that he is
the equal of his white biother, being u

and ivilization. hie paralel. line,-s on

is exactly in proportion to the N 6g' c I
ception of his rights under the constItution
of the l'nited States. To dimin ish this
friction his rights in ust be concedeil to himi
with less contention and inore willingness.
As a laborer, the Negro has alway.. becen and
is now the lever and the fuierni of Smuth
ern wealth. Without his brawny arils, his
iroi constitution, his ildouitabLc will, his
lastie patience, and his characteristic fdth
ftulness, the South never could have riset: so
rapiidly lito the business alid comimelrcil
circles of the civilized world. lie chaliipi
ons to-day is a laborer, the Eden tiellds of
the sunny but ever progressive "New
South.'' his practical and extensive use
fulness throughout the South is far beyionid
human power to estimate. Unlike foreign
laborers, he can be dependled upon01 undier
all circumnstatnces. The natural wealth whiich
he has acunulated wvithin the last twenty
five years proves him wvorthy of the gr at
gift of emancipation andlt the elective fran
chise conferred on himl. ie has according
to facts and figures acetunnulated $:;:,000,-f
(t00t. This is at line showing and is wiort hy
of pratise. The value of the N-.gro's crop1
for 18WVJ alnounted to $1 ht00,0,00.
The1 pirogress of the Negro int theC profes
sionIs is another evidenlce tihat heis2 far aIway
from the place where einanciipatio fonn011d
and left hita. As an inlstructor of his~ irace
in the schools where he has been givenq the
opportunlity, he has attested is canacjity
for the work to the entire saitisfacttionl of
friends atnd foes. As hawyers theyv hatvea
